Silver Horns was a tick themed monster created by Lord Zedd from a tick. He serves as the main antagonist of the second part of the episode "The Power Transfer".

Biography

After Serpentera ran out of power, Lord Zedd used a tick to create Silver Horns to attack the earth in its place, with its first target being Angel Grove.

Upon being dispatched to Angel Grove, Silver Horns attacked the city and encountered the Power Rangers. During the fight with the Rangers, Silver Horns attacked the heroes with beams from his horns and eyes, as well as fire. After a brief fight, Zedd enlarged Silver Horns, where the monster battled Rocky in the Red Dragon Thunderzord. Unfortunately, Rocky's first solo Zord battle didn't go well: the monster tossed the Zord like a ragdoll and the Zord's attacks were minimal with most of them being blocked (possibly due to a combination of the monster's power and Rocky's inexperience). Silver Horns even laughed off the repeated spin attacks delivered by the Red Dragon Thunderzord. Rocky attempted to use the Red Dragonzord's finisher on Silver Horns, but it failed to destroy and even harm the monster  (The attack wasn't shown onscreen, but with the monster battling later as if nothing happened, there's a strong possibility it had little effect). At that moment, however, Tommy arrived to aid Rocky with the White Tigerzord. However, Silver Horns was still too powerful and easily overwhelmed the two Zords. Upon calling upon all the Thunderzords, the Rangers formed the Thunder Ultrazord which then crushed Silver Horns, finally destroying the powerful monster.

Personality

Silver Horns had a southern accent, speaking very much like a countryside cowboy. He has a relatively laid back personality for most of the battle, likely due to the one-sidedness of it, seeming to be just having fun battling the Red Dragon Thunderzord until the Tigerzord shows up for reinforcement, then he gets more serious.

Powers And Abilities

  • Super Strength-Silver Horns is one of the physically strongest monsters of Season 2, being able to send the Red Dragon Thunderzord flying with a single backhand strike and smashing a mountain into rubble with one swing.
  • Durability-Silver Horns has very thick armour like skin, similar to a tick's, that allowed him to take multiple strikes from the Red Dragon Thunderzord's staff and be completely unfazed. Even when the Red Dragon performed it's spin attacks, it took three kicks to even get a reaction and even then he was unfazed.
  • Lightning Blasts-Silver Horns could make his eye turn white and then fire red-blue-yellowy lightning from the claws, horns  and spikes jutting from his body which was was his strongest attack as it took down the Red Dragon Warrior Mode and White Tigerzord.
  • Flame Blasts-Silver Horns can also shoot fire from his horns.

Arsenal

  • Claws-Silver Horns may lack any real weapons but has massive clawed hands strong enough to block the Red Dragon Thunderzord's staff finishing slash.

Behind The Scenes

Portrayal

  • Just like several other characters, Silver Horns is voiced by Michael Sorich who makes him sound like a Texan version of Pachinko Head who he would play three episodes later.

Notes

  • In Dairanger, Silver Horns was a creature brought forth from hell by the boy villain Akomaru as the muscle n his scheme to turn Koh the Kibaranger evil like him. He was also the only monster in the season not to be a Gorma Minion and instead a different type of beast entirely.
    • Also, unlike Silver Horns, he was incapable of speech aside from grunting, growling, and snarling.
  • Silver Horns was one of the five villains to appear in Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: The Fighting Edition. Silver Horns also appears in the SNES version of Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: The Movie as the fifth boss. The games also confirm the spelling of Silver Horns (as opposed to Silverhorns).
  • The Silver Horns costume was repainted  use and given a tongue in the episode "A Friend in Need", as the monster Repellator.
  • The reason that we never see the Red Dragon Thunderzord hit Silver Horns with its finisher is because it never made contact with hkm in Dairanger. His counterpart, Ikazuchi, flees from the battle when Mythical Chi Warrior RyuseiOh activates it's Great Windmill Slice. He was then able to return small sized later
    • They didn't do this in Power Rangers because of both evil White Ranger, Akomaru, and a Japanese woman (the mother of both Kou and Akomaru in Dairanger).
      • This limited amount of usable footage is why there is a long gap between the Red Dragon activating it's finisher and the Tigerzord arriving to help Rocky.
